Verdict

Art Wave has leading claims having been beaten less than length on the Polytrack at Lingfield last month. But MAJOR SURPRISE had a subsequent winner in front when fourth at Thirsk on his latest start and today's shorter trip can see him off the mark. Flying Cape showed some progress at Warwick last time but Mumtaza was a big disappointment when starting second favourite on her debut at Haydock. Don Ottavio is a newcomer to keep an eye on for the future.
